About Sue Crowle

We are a family from Cardiff who like to spend time away from the city in the peace and quiet of west Wales, where the pace of life is very relaxing.

Sue Crowle purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Sue Crowle chose Carmarthenshire

We spent a couple of years holidaying in west Wales and fell in love with the area. When we were fortunate enough to take up the opportunity to buy a chalet, we were delighted with our decision. We've had years of happy experiences and memories exploring the beautiful coastline and local attractions. Why the name Milkwood for the chalet? This is the wonderful landscape that inspired Dylan Thomas, the writer of Under Milkwood, who lived close by in Laugharne.

What makes this chalet unique

We loved the fact the chalet site is on a river estuary, close to the seaside village of Llansteffan, which boasts a medieval castle and the tranquil Scott's Bay. We can jump in the car and in a couple of minutes, we're in Llansteffan for a country walk, play on the beach or sitting eating ice cream, taking in the sea view. Fantastic.

Elmrise Park, Llansteffan

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our May bank holiday week in Elmrise Park, Llansteffan. The chalet was very comfortable and had everything we needed, a real home from home! It was so peaceful and tranquil and the people in the park were all very friendly and the kids made many new friends. We really enjoyed visiting nearby Llansteffan beach which is ideal for the kids and we also visited Folly Farm and a few of the castles. We hope to visit again soon.

Quiet, well-located and self contained chalet

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy chalet, well equipped with all you need for a nice stay. We really appreciated the little touches from the owner (welsh cakes, fresh flowers, milk in the fridge); it made us feel very welcome.

The site was nice and quiet. It is very conveniently located, with lovely beaches not too far, as well as lots of attractions and places to visit. Some very lovely walks as well not far from the property, means there is something for everyone to enjoy.

We would highly recommend staying here.

Clean, comfortable, owner very helpful, great value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this chalet for a week in August 2016.The owner was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.The cleaning lady was also very helpful and obliging. Every home comfort/necessity had been carefully thought out and provided (even down to toys for the kids to play with, buckets/spades etc).We only wished we had stayed longer.Will definitely return.

Perfect setting for a peaceful break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Milkwood for the three nights at the beginning of October half term. The chalet is well equipped, thoughtful touches such as extra blankets and a few toys and DVDs are provided for children. The mattresses were amazing! Could of slept forever! We were a little worried about the cost of heating the chalet using the electric heaters and the coin operated meter however it cost us only around £2 per day which was great considering how many appliances we has on!

The location of the chalet is lovely, you are only five minutes from Llamsteffan beach, and fifteen minutes in the other direction is Carmarthen for all you shopping supplies. We found nice woods to walk in, castles to explore and ale to drink. Thoroughly enjoyed our break.

Last but not least - the owner Sue is absolutely lovely and could not be more helpful. We accidentally left our youngest son's treasured snuggle pillow behind and she kindly retrieved and posted it back to us. Thank you Sue!
